      Let's sort the carb first. You are lucky it is too hot to sleep.   Original fuel tank? Could the fuel lines be clogged with rusty crud. Blow compressed air down feed and then return line into tank and listen if it bubbles strongly. Is the inline fuel filter clean?   Oil pump, yes exhaust off, drain oil, remove sump (I had two really awkward sump bolts, so check whether the flywheel has cutouts for access by removing the flywheel cover plate on engine side of gearbox and turning crank) gives access. There are 2 oil sensors for low speed (below 2000rpm) and faster, so a really annoying buzzer will sound over 2000rpm if pressure below about 2.2 bar a Volkswagen feature to save your engine. I disconnected the J114 circuit board having made sure it was false alarms. Inside the clocks and use a remote oil pressure sender with pressure and WK terminals and gauge, so I see actual pressure and still will get low pressure alarm if oil low like every other car make. I am on original pump and chain 200,000+ miles 
    • 111Robin
      While we're on the subject of the HZ, is it possible to replace the oil pump and chain in situ by dropping the end of the engine down and removing the sump ?. Also, why are there two oil pressure switches on the head ?. Sorry for drifting the topic but you are being very helpful and hopefully you don't mind.
    • 111Robin
      I did take note of the numbers stamped on the flange though : 32TL6/251  0382
    • 111Robin
      The acc.pump jet is the original one so again presumably sized correctly for the HZ. I think it has 40 on it but could be wrong. I really should have noted these details down when it was apart.
    • 111Robin
      I did replace the fuel pump previously, I've had experience with this being the cause of fuel starvation, but unfortunately it was another wrong guess. Regarding jet size, the carb' is spec'd for the HZ engine so I would have thought it to be correct. I didn't take note of the sizes when I had it in bits unfortunately.
